Latte art and milk foaming tips

Cappuccino, espresso macchiato, caffè latte.
Steamed or frothed milk is essential for many beloved espresso-based drinks.
Learn with our coffee experts how to create foamed milk, ideally „microfoam“, perfect for decorating and creating many different patterns in a coffee cup with the technique well-known as latte art.

To prepare the milk foam, focus on the basics:

    1. Use a chilled metal pitcher with a narrow and straight spout
    2. Use fresh and cold milk (~4°C)
    3. The higher the protein content of your milk the better (≥ 3,3%)
    4. Use your hand to feel the temperature on the side of the pitcher while heating it up
    5. Milk becomes sweeter during heating, but do not overheat it, lactose may burn, ideally the milk reaches 55-65°C
    6. Use metal pitchers with the matching size: Small = 1 cup*, Medium = 2 cups*, Large = 3 cups* (*cup sizes and pitcher sizes vary, always measure the volumes of both before you make the purchase decision)
